Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of (Or At All)

Top Ten

A meme from the Broke and the Bookish.

Today’s topic: Top Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of (Or At All)

  1. North Carolina – The south is getting more exposure but I still feel like if it is noticeably the south then it has to be obnoxious accents and all.
  2. Other planets with aliens – We have made it to outer space lately with YA but it still tends to be humans often on shuttles.
  3. Other culture fantasy – We are seeing more of this but I think we can always use more fantasy based on other traditions rather than the Western classics.
  4. Medieval fantasy – This is so silly but I kind of miss the “cliché” medieval style fantasy.  Not actually set in medieval times but you know what I mean.
  5. Europe (London, Prague, Paris) – I have read some of these lately and I know others are out there, but I need recommendations.
  6. Wilderness – Seeing people really use survival skills, maybe really cold weather.  Doesn’t have to be the whole book but more than a few days.  This kind of connects to 10.
  7. Totally fictional worlds – I love worlds where there is a mix of cultures, a mix of realistic and completely fabricated.  I think this takes it a step beyond the medieval style fantasy.
  8. On ships and boats – I am totally picturing tall ships and pirates and sailors and calluses and things that I know nothing about.
  9. Africa/India/Asia/Middle East – I just read a novel set in India and it made me want more… exotic.  I know that sounds ridiculous but I think the more stories like this, the more variety in general.
  10. Islands – I love the idea of what isolation does to people.  I think it allows you to really focus on characters.
